64th Independence Day Message

The Embassy of Ghana wishes all Ghanaians living in France and in Portugal a happy 64th Anniversary of our Independence.

In an update to the Ghanaian community, the acting Head of Mission stated that, “Ghana attained independence on 6th March 1957. Being the first sub-Saharan African country to attain independence, we have over the years endeavoured, with much success, to blaze the trail and lead by example on the African continent. The development of strong governance and democratic institutions has been a steady exercise that we, as a nation, have committed to. Indeed, Ghana is viewed as exemplary on the continent in this regard. On this auspicious occasion, let me seize the opportunity to reiterate that in spite of the challenges posed by the pandemic, the Embassy’s doors remain open to provide consular services to our compatriots and the general public in an efficient manner.  To this end, I am delighted to announce that the Mission is poised to launch an online biometric passport application system to enable all who require Ghanaian passports obtain one. Mission would communicate the modalities for accessing the online biometric application process in due course. All are, therefore, entreated to continue to access the Embassy’s portals for effective service delivery.

To conclude, I call on all Ghanaians to strictly adhere to the various protocols that have been instituted by the French Government. These are not normal times, thus the adherence to these protocols coupled with the roll-out of vaccines should help curb this pandemic as we look forward to a brighter future. Let us continue to be hopeful and be each other’s keeper.

May the Lord bless us all and continue to bless our homeland Ghana!

I thank you.”
